Storyline

Frank Nitti has a major problem: someone in his organization is leaking information to Eliot Ness and the Untouchables. They've closed down several of his distilleries and several members of the organization are starting to question Nitti's leadership. He decides to seek out someone who use to work for Al Capone, Walter Trager known as the Leaker, who has a knack for finding and closing down leaks in the organization. Trager narrows the possible list of leakers down to two people: Nitti driver Marty Wilger and his own brother-in-law Harry Mailer, a local politician on Nitti's payroll. Nitti orders them both killed but doesn't realize that Trager is out to take over the entire organization. Trager's sister, now a widow, has her own plans as well. Written by garykmcd

James Gregory as "Walter Trager" is really, really good in this episode. He is a man the gangsters go to when they have a leak in their organization and they can't find it. They hire Trager and he finds the leaks....every time. The call him "The Leaker." Now boss "Frank Nitti" needs Trager. The latter figures it out or at least narrows it down to two possibilities....and has both men killed!

Problem over?

No. Now Trager wants to take over from Nitti! Boy, being a top gangster is not it's cracked up to be. Everyone wants your job....or see you go to jail.

Not only does Nitti have to put up with Trager but also his ambitious sister, played by a young-and-pretty Cloris Leachman.

This is an excellent, suspenseful episode.
